    Pretty surprised the Fritz jacket made it to 70% off in the sizes it did on Ssense. I can't justify the purchase myself right now, though I'm sure I'll be kicking myself later.

    I agree. I have that very pair and think they are great with excellent materials, better than this seasons regular CP version of them. The only reason I even had them listed was to offset other footwear purchases, but no one else besides us seems to have been interested. I'll likely keep them and start wearing them again they are that nice.


    I just saw this post, I now have had two versions of the bordeau colorway, a size 46 from Nomad which just recently arrived and one from the recent SF sample sale (which I now think fit more like a 50 rather than a 48 after trying on the 46), and my thoughts are that if you have a smaller waist and thin legs and prefer slim fits you will likely want to stay TTS on the lounge pants from this season. If you have bigger thighs/quads than you would probably be more happy sizing up one for a slightly looser silouhette and still be able to maintain a non frumpy fit. I'm going to be listing my bordeau 46 (my usual size in Geller lounge/flight/sweat type of pants) soon since I picked up the 48. The pants are great though I have say, a good cross between sweats and casual wool pants.


    Same here with respect to the Seconds sweats. I picked up a pair mid season and returned them because the fit from the knee down was slimmer than I prefered in comparison to the top block. I also wasn't a big fan of the 100% poly material, doesn't breath well and not to mention picks up and creates a lot of static which was making the pants "stick" to my legs and getting them all bunched. I think these would have benefitted from a cotton/poly blend personally.

    Yeah, you will. I own it and it's awesome.

    The 48 and 50 were sold on ssense, but I think they got returned. Unbelievable that they are still sitting there at 70%.

    Also, it fits slim. I'm a 46 and went with a 48.

    A bit more on the Conrad:
    Only two sizes were made 57 and 59, with a 3/4in difference between two sizes.
    Despite how the pic looks, it did not remotely fit my head. (this one was a 57)

    But damn, it is a cool hat.
    Sort of wondering if I should try to get a custom one made elsewhere.

    So, if any of you are on the fence . . . do it.
    Ssense has it for $115 now.

    (this is from Totokaelo, btw)

    Can anyone with the richard knit jacket comment on the material/fit? Particularly whether it runs short/long, big/small. Not sure if i need a 48 or a 50.

    What season we talking? Generally it fits pretty TTS. It's not a super slim cut.

    purple melange version from this season. looks a bit tighter in the pictures i've seen compared to the brown version. material seems slightly different too, 57% acrylic (prurple) vs 85% acrylic (brown), just curious if anyone picked it up.

    Kind of hard to see in the pictures but this seasons version has double buttoned breast pockets.

    It's somewhat likely that the model on Acrimony is wearing a size down.

    ForwardForward might have measurements under sizing & fit iirc

    Or email Acrimony.

    I'd probably lean towards the 50, it's something you want to fit roomy imo. Plus it's nice to wear over sweaters or even light jackets

    good eye, didn't even notice that. i'd prefer the single breast pocket that the brown version has, but i prefer the purple color as the brown doesn't seem as dark as acrimony's picture makes it look


    checked forward but couldn't find the item page. is there a way to look up items that are out of stock? asked acrimony for measurements but haven't heard back. seems odd that they would give the same model two different sizes of the jacket to wear, if you are saying that he is wearing a size down in the purple vs the brown.

    Here you go, measurements are listed

    Also added to above post

    Good point about the model but the brown one is from last season so at least they wouldn't be photo'ing different sizes at the same time.
    I guess it's possible the fit could change that much, the way the past few seasons have been

    Either way, this looks way better than on Acrimony so like I said I'd err on the larger side

    I'm not a fan of the double pocket.

    Waiting on the single pocket Spring 2014 one.
